Hi all,

I'm translating a text about a medical instrument where it refers to its patent in the USA. This patent is not translated in my language (Spanish), and I'm in doubt regarding if I should translate the title, leave it untranslated with translation in brackets o just leave it unstranslated. Can anybody help me?

Thank you all in advance.
Beatriz

I would leave the title untranslated, with the translation in brackets.
